SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS
Enhancing your fan base with the help of social media has become essential by today. Popular models use massive social media campaigns to establish their own personal brand with potential customers. The following page will list you those free social media platforms that the successful webcam models use. All you need to have is passion, effort and open-minded attitude to be successful in advertising yourself.
Twitter is one of the most popular, quick and easy ways to collect fans, keep in touch with them and also a great way to advertise yourself regularly. You do not need to worry about your confidential info either as you can set up your Twitter account in a smart way. If you work as a webcam model you know that there might be periods when you experience lower traffic in your room. This is what Twitter is good for too, just tweet your fans that you are online on SoulCams.
If you are new to Twitter you should follow these basic steps:
- Add your cam model name as Twitter username and use your cam model email address to sign up.
- Add your SoulCams member/model referral links: Twitter allows you to add a link to your profile to your SoulCams profile. Feel free to add your individual SoulCams member/performer referral links. Find these links at the top of the very first page in your SoulCams performer account. This also will help you make money, even when you’re not online.
- Make sure you have a picture of yourself on your Twitter account that will encourage people to visit you on cam.
- Follow SoulCams' official Twitter page to know about the latest news, goodies: https://twitter.com/SoulCams
- Search for the Twitter accounts of popular models and begin to follow their male followers. It is recommended to follow around 30-40 persons per day, just mind to take it slow and steady. Some of them will follow you back and you should have a good amount of potential clients to advertise to within a few days. The guy who you picked to follow receives and email notifying him that he has a new follower and if he finds you interesting he will follow you back. Check out the following page for examples of webcam models' Twitter profiles: Female Models Twitter Directory
- Periodically Unfollow Those Who Don’t Follow You Back: not every one who you follow will follow you back so you may end up following let's say 1000 people and only 600 people follow you back. Twitter profiles with such difference between number of followees and followers look spammy, so you need to unfollow those who don’t follow you back. It would be very time consuming and annoying to do this manually but luckily there are many free tools online that will make this process easy. Sear for some such tools via Google.
